By the People: The Election of Barack Obama
Get an all-access pass behind the scenes of the presidency as filmmakers trace the political journey of Barack Obama from his days as a Chicago senator to his current status as Commander in Chief. Explore the grass roots effort to get him elected by witnessing his landmark first victory in Iowa and following him on the road during the punishing primary campaign. Later, Obama is sworn into the presidency at the historical inauguration that named him the first African American president in the history of the United States.
